The Metro Washington Council on Monday night voted to endorse Ed Lazere, Robert White, Janeese Lewis and Trayon White in their DC City Council races. “This election is pivotal up and down the ballot,” said MWC President Dyana Forester. “We must come out in record numbers to defeat Donald Trump and demonstrate the power of workers and elect pro-worker councilmembers here in the nation’s capital.” Ed Lazere and current councilmember Robert White are running for At-Large seats, while Janeese Lewis George is running in Ward 4 and Trayon White is running for re-election in Ward 8. The MWC and its affiliates will spend the next six weeks working to turn out the labor vote among the 140,000 workers they represent throughout the region. “Now, the work to get a strong slate of pro-worker candidates elected begins and we are energized and committed to winning every office of our endorsed candidates,” said MWC Political and Legislative Director David Stephen.
